Research & Development Program in Creative Cognition



As a company at the forefront of Science-Art integration, we are focused on understanding the what and how of creativity and spontaneous multisensory adaptability. Our goal is to have an impact on the next generation of artificial intelligent systems.

All artworks we create (theatre, film, & photography) function as unique frameworks from which we acquire novel data for our empirical study of creativity and human intelligence.

The published articles below discuss the methods, data, and results of La Petite Noiseuse Productions' original and innovative research.
